Built by New England Boat Works Curlew was designed by L. Francis Herreshoff and modified by Alan Vaitses. This is a ketch rigged sailboat built of fiberglass with a hull and deck of foam core.  Her self-bailing cockpit is 6’ long with a 30” bridge deck.  She’s only 8’wide and so can be transported without permits.  She has port and starboard lee boards. Sleeping accommodations are for 4 with two single berths and one convertible double in the forward cabin. Aft is the head with sink and vanity to port and storage bins and handing locker to starboard. The main cabin has the two single berths with bookshelves outboard on both sides.  A folding dining table lies in the center. The galley is at the aft end of the main salon with a counter to port along with a gimballed propane stove and oven and double SS sink To starboard is another hanging locker and a fiberglass ice box. The interior is finished in knotty pine and the cabin sole is a painted fiberglass. The headroom is 71” in the forward cabin and head area, 73” mid-salon & 72” at the companionway. There are 3 hatches and 8 opening ports with screens for excellent cross ventilation. The sails bend on a masthead tabernacle-based ketch rig supported by SS standing rigging to new galvanized turnbuckles (1998) via swaged upper and Sta-Lok lower terminals.  There are wire rope halyards and polyester sheets. The modification by Vaitses created a larger boat than Herreshoff’s original and are proven to be extremely practical shoal-draft cruisers – not “Yachty”, but very practical cruising vessel. The hull has been sanded and faired and needs paint.
